Break from Blogger

Just to let you all know I'm having a break from blogger for a while. I will be reading yours now and then - but I've got so much revision to do for Science that I really must get on with it. Once I start reading journals I get lost in them and then don't have time to revise. My final exams are on 15th January and 19th January so I really have to study lots before then. I just wanted you all to know that I'm not ignoring you all and I will try to pop in from time to time.

I have had an awful time the last 8 days. I have been in pain constantly. My foot is really bad with the sciatica at the moment. I just can't find a way to relieve it. It never used to bother me during the day but this week it has. Normally I just get the irritation and pain at night and just mild irritation during the day. It feel like someone has a red hot poker and they are constantly drawing circles in my foot. Its hard to explain really. I suppose I will have to go back to the Doctor, which I am dreading because last time they pulled me about and gave me allsorts of treatment, the worst being the epidural, and then said there was nothing they could do.

I ended up crying today as I've just had enough of this pain. I'm also very very tired as I have not slept properly for over 8 days now which is worse than Im used to. I have been going to bed at 2am because there is absolutely no point going to bed until I am very very very tired! Last night I got 5 hours sleep - the most I've had in ages. I was so relieved to be able to sleep soundly at last. I will ring the doctor tomorrow and try get an appointment - I've got to sort this out once and for all as it is making me so miserable.

Right I best get on with the revising!!!
